Support Team Safe Kids New Jersey in the Marine Corps Marathon!

Safe Kids is a charity partner in the Marine Corps Marathon, which takes place on October 25, 2009 in Washington, D.C. This race will draw more than 30,000 runners from around the country, including our dedicated runner Ali Zaidi of Chester, New Jersey. Ali was amazed by the work Safe Kids does and approached us to run his first ever Marine Corps Marathon to help raise funds on behalf of Team Safe Kids New Jersey

As a proud parent of three, Ali chose to align his efforts with Safe Kids New Jersey for all the right reasons. “Completing a marathon has always been a personal goal for me,” Ali says. “However, as any parent knows it’s tough to find time to fulfill your personal ambitions. I felt that if I was representing something bigger than myself I could get through the strenuous training.”

Completing 26.2 miles is a real badge of honor, but it’s nothing compared to helping prevent a lifetime of suffering for a child with a serious injury. Read more about our runner Ali Zaidi in the Daily Record and Mendham Chester Washington Township This Week. You can follow Ali’s progress on his Team Safe Kids New Jersey webpage.

You can also support us in our goal of keeping kids safe from injuries every day by contributing to Team Safe Kids New Jersey. We know that what we do works and we need your help to continue our mission. Through our statewide network of local Safe Kids New Jersey coalitions, your contribution will help us educate and protect families throughout our state.
